Keep walking, and running

And running for miles

Ain't going back to Barton Hollow
Devil gonna follow me e'er I go
Won't do me no good washing in the river
Can't no preacher man save my soul
Miles and miles in my bare feet
Still can't lay me down to sleep
If I die before I wake
I know the Lord my soul won't take

Gonna be 26 in about 2 weeks. It feels like...well, nothing special, really. I'll probably feel differently once I hit 30, but that's still 4 years away. Plenty of time until I have to start making noises about how I'm getting up there.

I feel like Jayden would laugh at me for saying that. Which: fair enough, really. 30 ain't that old.

I seem to have gotten into a habit of posting songs a lot on this thing. And who am I to break tradition?

I heard this song on the radio the other day, and it just made me think of my father, almost instantly. In between laughing and nodding. It's about a guy who's mad at his ex-girlfriend, but it could really fit almost anyone.

I would also like to add, I don't actually condone anyone doing any of these things. Violence is not OK. But Daddy did always say I should pray for people.

The bitterness is always a bit more concentrated around this time, since it's the 8 year anniversary of getting thrown out. Wish Mama was still alive. Really wish that.

If y'all don't listen to The Civil really should. I love them, they're a permanent fixture in my music. Here, have a listen.

Barton Hollow, The Civil Wars )

Reminds me a little of home. And not in a 'hate-filled, kneejerk' sort of way.
